So Cyclonic Blast is really really irritating in current implementation. Aside from it's borderline effect in terms of damage and trip due to it's line it has much bigger issues. Alternately the spells it effects have serious issues.
Wall of Fire: Why do you hate this spell Turbine? Seriously, why? It is extinguished by Cyclonic Blast, Gust of Wind, Ice Storm..entirely to much. To make matters worse Gust of wind is 2nd lvl with the ability to extinguish a 4th lvl huge wall of magical fire..really? Ice Storm not only extinguishes it but renders the area unable to be fire walled. This doesn't even touch the whole fire at high lvls obsolescence.
And to those that think a puff of wind or an ice storm should do as it does for "logical" reasons..NO, have a bonfire, go see a burning building, go outside..it's not how it works. Nevermind that it's magic and you are giving equal and lower lvl spells serious trump cards that they should not have. Well, enough about fire wall.
Ice Storm: All the same as Wall of Fire except of course wall of fire does nothing to it..because its such a giant ice storm? So giant in fact that a little puff of wind does not move it but extinguishes it entirely...Ridiculous. Even so Cyclonic Blast, note Gust of Wind is still BS for this, is higher lvl and this might, maybe, be moderately ok. Sadly there is more..
Otto's Sphere of Dancing: It isn't a disco ball in fact folks, it is a magical zone in which people dance..clearly wind should remove that...absurd.
Earthquake: IT IS AN EARTHQUAKE. Aside from the fact that wind should very reasonably have no effect on it it is also a much higher lvl spell. Silly. Just plain silly.
Acid Rain and all Clouds: Yes, Gust of Wind should move these, Cyclonic Blast should extinguish them. That's about it. More spells though...
Blade Barrier: Hmm, all the spells Turbine allows Cyclonic Blast to extinguish but they leave Blade Barrier alone? How come? It is more resistant physically than an Earthquake maybe? Not likely. It isn't a zone of effect like Otto's Dance? Wrong again. It almost certainly has to do with player outrage. So let's get these other persistent spells fixed to shall we.
Less griefing more cooperation and all that.
I wonder if it has anything to do with wasted SP and pots...hmmm.
